The Hope Association is NOT a Refuge nor rescue association, we are purely a fund-raising organisation that raises funds to support other animal associations that foster and re-home animals.

We do not have the facilities for fostering animals in need; what we can do is, offer advice and point you in the direction of those that can help you. Other Animal Rescue Associations use our website to advertise and raise awareness of the animals that they have in their care, looking for forever homes.

In October 2014 after our bi-annual Book Sale, we were able to support the following associations by way of donations, this is because of the tireless work Hope’s team of volunteers and, of course, the kind generosity of the general public who support Hope’s fundraising events.

Twilight Maison Retrait pour Chiens

L’association Orfee

Poor Paws

Levriers & Co

Felin Pour l’autre

Association Galia

APA Niort

Mornac SPA

Limoges SPA


L’ecole du chat libres de Poitiers

Galia Association

Hope also supports several independent cat sterilisation programmes.

If you find an abandoned animal or animal in need, the first thing you must do is take it to the vet to see if it has any ID i.e. tattoo or chip, with this identification the vet will be able to locate the animal’s owner. If there is no ID then your vet will tell you what to do next.
